On Saturday, November 25, 2019, two boys in California were killed as they sat in a van in the parking lot of an elementary school.
Authorities reported that a number of gunmen fired on the vehicle and killed the boys, ages 11 and 14, outside of Searles Elementary School in Union City, which is 30 miles southeast of San Francisco.
Various residents called the police and reported hearing gunshots around 1:30 a.m., according to an East Bay Times report. Police arrived at the scene and found them with gunshot wounds.
The police said that the older boy died when police came to the scene and the younger boy died while he was sent to a hospital. Their names were not disclosed because of their age.
“How do you just kill kids?” a mother of a child who was a schoolmate of one of the murdered boys, asked KGO-TV. “I don’t think he has quite grasped this yet,” she said of her son. “He is afraid to go outside.”
The New Haven Unified School District Superintendent John Thompson revealed that the two boys attended schools in the district.
KGO reported that family and friends erected a makeshift memorial at the school while police collected shell casings and other pieces of evidence for their investigation.
So far, no arrests have been made. Police are still investigating a motive for the shooting.
Police have not ruled out the possibility that the shooting was gang-related or related to a previous shooting last Wednesday where two men were wounded.
While the gun control debate heats up in America, many are quick to overlook how California has been suffering a spate of mass shootings in the last month.
According to the website The Truth About Guns, California has witnessed 4 mass shootings— one where gunmen killed 4 people at a football party.
California is currently ranked in 47th place for Guns & Ammo magazine’s Best States for Gun Owners.
Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel
Post-pandemic America will not look the same.
Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.
In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates.
Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.”
Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.
According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”
Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:
If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.
Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain.
If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
